Breakfast With the Stars, Sunday: Kirk Biglione (Continued)

Good talk on Digital Rights Management (DRM). Not the sexiest topic in the world, but important for writers to understand. The issue is that there's no agreement (standard) in the industry on which one to use (the old VCR vs Beta debate). Once everyone agrees, buying ebooks will likely become even simpler.

Someone asked if, as a writer, you should be concerned about someone pirating your work, which led to Kirk's best takeaway quote from the speech:

"You should be so lucky to have someone who loves your work so much that they want to take it." (That made me laugh)
